When you click the close window button, we just forward it to the remote
application which then takes whatever action it wants (in some cases,
none at all).
Some will close, some will minimize, some will show you their own alert
box, etc
Interposing some UI prompt here would just cause headaches in too many
cases: it would be very hard to give the user a meaningful UI
alternative because we would not even know in advance what that choice does.
If you want to detach, just use the system tray menu.
